Join us, Denver Integrative Massage School in our fantastic, upcoming workshop: Asian Energy Theory & Techniques!
In this two and a half day workshop we will explore the ancient art of Chinese medicine based on the basic principles of the five elements, yin and yang, and the meridian system. From this solid foundation we will then begin to experience and practice several advanced healing techniques including:
- Cupping – An ancient technique that places cups with reduced air pressure onto areas of the body. The suction on the skin creates a vacuum and has been said to be effective in treating respiratory illnesses, musculoskeletal conditions, lymphatic drainage, toxin release and more.
- Moxibustion – A therapy using an herb known as moxa or mugwort. During the treatment the aged herb is used in several ways. It may be burned while on the patient’s skin or placed directly on acupuncture needles. Moxibustion is said to be an effective, stimulating therapy used to treat many chronic conditions involving qi or blood flow.
- Tibetan Singing Bowls – A powerful tool used in relaxation and meditation. By causing friction, these bowls create a continuous “singing” sound that is considered sound therapy and can be used during Yoga, ceremonies or personal use.
- Tuning Forks – These devices have been adopted as healing tools used for vibration or sound therapy. By striking them and placing at different points on the body they are used to treat conditions from nausea to coughing as well as a way to tonify the lungs.
Leading this workshop, we have Instructor, Sylvia Rojas LAc. She is an amazing local and experienced Acupuncturist who brilliantly combines various Asian techniques to create a unique, healing experience for all of her patients.
